Our organic raw hemp protein powder is grown in sustainable hemp plantations in Romania. All parts of the plant are used; from the fibrous stems, used in the textile industry, to the seeds, valued for their nutritious oil and protein content. The seeds mature after approximately 4 months from planting, bursting forth from the seed heads. They are gently cleaned and separated from debris to ensure a pure seed content is retained and cold pressed within their hulls. The cold pressed oil is saved to create hemp oil products and the remaining compressed protein rich "cake" is vibrationally sifted to create the nutty flavoured fine powder presented here.
Hemp protein powder is high in protein, containing as much as 50% protein, 20 amino acids and 8 essential amino acids, so called because they cannot be synthesised by the body (they must be obtained from food).
A diet rich in protein can contribute to the growth and maintenance of normal muscle mass and bones. Our hemp protein powder is also high in fibre, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous and is a source of calcium (see nutrient chart tab for values).
OUR ORGANIC RAW HEMP PROTEIN POWDER IS FREE FROM ALLERGENS, VEGAN & COMES IN FULLY COMPOSTABLE POUCHES
